The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday ordered registration of an FIR in the gun attack on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan within 24 hours.

A five-member SC bench headed by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial passed the order while hearing the contempt of court case against the former prime minister.

During the hearing, CJP Bandyal asked IGP Punjab how much time he would need to file an FIR in the incident.

“Under the criminal justice system, the police itself can register the FIR. It has been over 90 hours but an FIR has not been registered,” the CJP observed.

Tell me within what time the assault FIR will be filed.

The CJP observed that delay in FIRs meant loss of evidence and the SC would ensure the smooth running of the criminal justice system, the CJP remarked.

CJP Bandial also said that it is a judicial responsibility, even if the provincial government takes a different stand, the police should act according to the law.

SC ordered filing of assault FIR on Imran Khan within 24 hours and said police and IG Punjab will be given protection.

However, IG Shahkar told the court that the provincial government was not allowing him to register the FIR.

It is pertinent to mention here that Imran Khan and other PTI leaders were injured after a man opened fire near the PTI reception camp at Allahwala Chowk during the party’s long march.
